  • Training an army?

    Why can I only train a certan amount of troops at a time? I have enough resorses to train hundreds but I'm only able to train 30? Is it because of my food production level?

  • #2
    Most likely your idle population is too low. You can only train your population minus the people who left due to your taxes and your workers in the fields.

    Click your resource bar at the top of the city screen to see your population limit (the most your cottages can hold) your tax rate which affects your happiness which affects your population also.

      So what is idle population? I have had no news of people leaving.
      Also what do troops consume/cost? Is it food and gold?

      Thx for the reply

        Ok say you have room for 40,000 people in your city

        Your tax rate is 20%....Your people in your city get upset and the happiness goes down by the same amount as your tax rate goes up. So your happiness goes down to 80%

        Your happiness is 80% so 20% of your people get mad at you for taxing and leave. Now your population is 32,000.

        Your population is now 32,000 but you have built a bunch of fields to produce ore, food, stone, and wood. The total of the workers you have in your field is 22,000. so now out of the 32,000 you only have 10,000 left to train.

        When you go into your barracks and choose a type of troop to train at the bottom it tells you what is required to train.

        Type Required You Own

        Below this you can scroll down and see how much food,wood,stone,ore, and population it takes to train and how much you have.

        Depending on the tier of the troop you are trying to train depends on the amount of supplies and population it takes to train them.

        Now, to increase population if this is your problem you may have to lower your taxes to bring up happiness, build more cottages, upgrade cottages, or if you have filled your city spaces and cannot upgrade them you may have to upgrade your castle to be able to upgrade your cottages.

          Yes that makes a lot more sense now, thanks for your help.

          My happyness is at 80% is that ok or should I lower my tax untill I'm at 100% tax is 20?

          And thanks again

            up to you. if your alliance has alot of gold to spare then there is no reason to tax. Taxing is only if you have no other way to get gold for research.


            • #7
              I would suggest keeping the tax rate AT LEAST 20%, because you want to become self-sufficient, and you can't always depend on your alliance. Sure. they may be helpful people, but chances are, those people have some big, long, expensive studies to do and won't have all that extra to give. To get your idle population up while retaining your beginner protection, build at least 10 lv.5 cottages and you will be fine.

                If you get in a big enough alliance, they will have tens or hundreds of millions in gold. What you want is the minimum # of maxed houses to maintain fields and training and set tax rate to zero. Try to get at least 12 barracks maxed and your might will skyrocket as long as you keep training.
